Please distribute this among young researchers who may be interested.
A poster is attached.

This is an advertisement of a winter school in measured group theory,
with the dates February 1 – 12, 2016, at the Erwin Schrödinger
Institute, Vienna, Austria, organized by Miklos Abert, Goulnara
Arzhantseva, Damien Gaboriau, Thomas Schick and Andreas Thom.

The school is a part of the thematic program ‘Measured group theory’
held at ESI January 18 — March 18, 2016. See
www.uni-math.gwdg.de/schick/ESI16/esi16_1.html  for details. The
program for the school is:

Week 1 (Feb 1 – 5):

  • Gabor Elek: Sofic groups
  • Yair Glasner: Spaces of subgroups and IRS
  • Andrei Jaikin-Zapirain: An algebraic proof of the strong Atiyah conjecture for free groups

If you have any questions about the program, contact one of the
organizers.

Applications to the school should be sent to creinha@uni-math.gwdg.de.
If you are a young researcher, also ask a senior researcher (typically
your advisor) to send a short reference email to the same address. The
selected participants will be provided some financial support to cover
their local expenses. In exceptional cases, some financial support for
travel will also be provided.

The application email should contain the following information,
preferably following the format below:

  • Your name:
  •  Email:
  • Affiliation:
  • Research topic:
  • Your advisor’s name (if you are a student):
  • Weeks of the school you are applying to:
  • Do you need per diem and/or travel support:

Congreso de Jóvenes Investigadores, Real Sociedad Matemática Española, Universidad de Murcia, del 7 al 11 de septiembre de 2015
Estimados compañeros,

os reenvío el siguiente mensaje,

Un saludo,

Conchita

Estimados colegas,

os escribo como responsables de Redes Temáticas de Matemáticas en España.

El motivo de este correo es informaros sobre el III Congreso de Jóvenes Investigadores de la RSME, que tendrá lugar en Murcia del 7 al 11 de septiembre de este año. Podéis ver en la página web http://www.um.es/jovenesrsme2015/index.php toda la información
básica (comité científico, organizador, plenarios, sesiones paralelas, etc).

El 30 de abril concluye el plazo para solicitar presentar una comunicación en alguna sesión especial. También existe una sesión de posters.

Del mismo modo, el 30 de abril concluye el plazo para solicitar organizar sesiones paralelas adicionales. Dichas sesiones adicionales, preferentemente, deberán ser de temática no contenida en alguna de las 12 sesiones especiales ya organizadas, y que pueden consultarse en la web anterior. Para cualquier duda o mayor información en este sentido, estoy a vuestra disposición.

Os agradecería que dieseis difusión a esta información en vuestra Red Temática, por si hay algún investigador joven interesado en participar. La experiencia en los dos congresos de Jóvenes Investigadores RSME anteriores fue fantástica, y nos gustaría animar a los jóvenes de las redes temáticas a que asistan a este evento.

Gracias de antemano por vuestra colaboración.

Saludos,

Pablo Mira (Presidente del Comité Científico).

Dear colleagues,

A joint international meeting of mathematics organised by all Italian and Spanish mathematical societies will be held at the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, Spain, from June 30 to July 4 this year. Detailed information can be found at the following website:

http://www.ehu.es/en/web/fjim2014/

Registration is now open, and participants of all nationalities are welcome. If you plan to attend, we recommend that you register and book your accommodation as soon as possible, since we expect a high number of participants.

In this meeting there will be a special session on group theory from June 30 to July 2, see

http://www.ehu.es/en/web/fjim2014/group-theory

If you want to give a talk, please send an e-mail to the address gustavo.fernandez@ehu.es, indicating that you wish to do so, and a tentative title, before April 16.

If there are more people interested in giving a talk than the number of free slots in the schedule of the special session, then the organising committee will make a selection. An answer will be given soon after the Easter holiday, and preference will be given to young researchers.

There will also be the opportunity to present a poster. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to the same address indicated above before May 31.
